I really struggle to read books cover to cover. It probably is one of my worst habits. I don't know if it's down to my poor attention span or my poor choice of reading material, but I have tried reading a wide range. I even set myself the challenge of reading 50 books during this year (which isn't actually that many) to encourage myself to read and i can't see it happening - so far this year I have read four, and one of which was a book for my english lit class. What generally happens is I get about a third of the way through the book and I get bored. It doesn't seem to bother me that I wont know what happens to the characters at the end. So I'd appreciate it if you could either give me some tips on how to actually get reading (and I do want to read) or some books which you weren't able to put down. As a general rule I'll give any book a go, but with my attitude as it is at the minute, I dont think I should try and books that are too 'heavy'.
